Star Wars Patchwork Blanket
To celebrate the launch of the The Last Jedi I decided to make this fun blanket, combining a soft and cosy fleece with the fun printed cottons.
You Will Need:
Star Wars BB-8 Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre
Star Wars Resistance Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre
Star Wars Millennium Falcon Cotton Print Fabric - approx 1 metre
Grey Blending Fabric - approx 1 metre
Grey Fleece for Backing
How to Make:
Cut your Star Wars squares using a 6” x 6” quilting ruler and a rotary cutter. You will need 32 Grey blender squares, 12 Resistance squares, 12 Millennium Falcon squares and 8 BB-8 squares.
Once you have finished cutting, lay the squares out in 8 rows of 8. This will make a square blanket, you can cut more squares if you would like to make a rectangle.
Start sewing row by row using a 1cm seam allowance. Once you have sewn every row, press the seams in alternative directions per row. And sew the rows together, again using a 1cm seam allowance.
Give the front of the blanket a good press.
Using the front of the blanket as a guide, measure and cut the backing fleece.
Pin and sew right sides together using a 1.5cm seam allowance. Remember to leave a gap to turn the blanket through.
Once you have turned through, carefully press the edges and sew up the gap you left.
